Another prestigious award for the Italian Excelsior Palace Hotel in Rapallo, Portofino Coast, which has just been appointed by Trivago, the largest hotel search engine in the world, the best 5 Star Hotel in Liguria. The prize is awarded on the basis of more than 175 million reviews and evaluations available online that determine the score assigned to the hotels.

The metasearch thus intended to award the regional excellence, giving travellers an absolutely impartial selection of hotels to best represent the hospitality industry.
In recent years the Excelsior, the only five-star luxury hotel of the western Italian Riviera, received by Trivago other prizes such as, for example, that of “Top Beach Hotel” in 2012 and the following year it was included in the top ten best hotels on the beach.

This new award recognizes and clearly promotes the efforts of the hotel’s ownership that has been substantially investing in recent years in order to improve the product to better meet the expectations of a very demanding clientele.

Today Trivago means an international team of over 950 people in the world dedicated to make the site a more efficient and user-friendly search engine for hotels on the market, strong of more than 120 million users each month.

"Elite Platinum" Certification
Posted February 19, 2015
Our property has been certified as “Elite Platinum” by the Advisory Board of  Elite Meetings International, based in Santa Barbara, California.

This is a particularly important award: Elite Platinum actually represents a new level of endorsement from the EMAB, the independent panel of veteran meeting planners and hoteliers who developed the standards for group meetings and incentives properties. Elite Platinum criteria was developed in response to demand from the collection of 20,000+ meeting professionals who visit EliteMeetings.com to research and book high-end hotels and resorts. This certification is earned, and recognition is granted only to properties offering exceptional experiences for groups.

For Italy the selected properties are just 31 and the only hotel to represent the whole Liguria is the Excelsior itself. This is a great satisfaction for the Management and all the Staff who have always worked hard to promote the destination in the world.
